Forms & Communication
We know there are a lot of forms at the beginning of the school year. Please turn in your forms as soon as you can.  If you're missing any forms, please let us or Maria (our school secretary) know. You can email us at or call Maria at the office at 929-2901.

Here's what you should have received during the open house:

* Walking Field Trip Form-due ASAP
* Responsible Use of the Internet Form-due ASAP
* White Volunteer Application-due ASAP (if you plan on volunteering anytime this school year)
* Obstacle Course Challenge Registration-due ASAP to help us properly plan for the event
* Directory Form-due September 14
* Spirit Wear Orders-due by September 14

The Obstacle Course Challenge registration, directory form, spirit wear order form, and volunteer sheet were included in the blue welcome folder in the lobby at the open house.  If you did not receive a blue welcome folder, please let your child's teacher know or email us at and we will make sure that you receive a folder.  Only one folder is needed per family.  These forms can also be found on our Frequently Used Forms page.

Communications are sent home with 'messengers'.  A 'messenger' is the youngest student in your family at Lakeshore. Most communications are sent home on Thursdays but can come home any day of the week. Please make sure you're checking your student's backpack daily.

Parking & Traffic Safety

Weapon Free Zone 

New this year, we will be offering the directory free of charge to Lakeshore families in an electronic format.  If you have submitted your child's information in past years and there are no changes other than current year teacher and you wish to continue to show information previously supplied, you do not need to do anything.  We will automatically roll over last year's information to this year's directory.  If there are any new students, changes to past information, or you wish to add contact information for students, please submit the directory form by September 14th.  Please contact Shelly at or 920-246-0418 if you have any questions.

Lakeshore Obstacle Course Challenge Sponsors

Do you have a business that would like to give back to the community?  Please consider sponsoring at the third annual Lakeshore Obstacle Course on September 22, 2018. We are currently seeking two types of sponsorship. For a $25 donation, your company will be listed on our sponsor sheet and your logo will be featured on the back of our event t-shirt.  For each $50 donation, your company will be listed on our sponsor sheet, your logo will be featured on the back of our event t-shirt and your company's logo will be placed on an obstacle sign within the course.  Lakeshore PTO has 501c3 status, so in addition to supporting a great school, all donations are also tax deductible.  As a thank you for supporting our organization and school, sponsors also receive one free entry (person or family) into the event.  If you are interested in supporting our PTO in providing this fantastic event for the community please contact Andrea at or Nicole at  Thank you for your consideration.

Calling all potential ROOM PARENTS
If you are interested in being a room parent / co-room parent for this class, please contact Nicole Kamphuis.
The room parent this year will work with the teacher to organize individual room parties, be the direct communication link (between the school and PTO with the parents in your classroom) and work with the teacher on any other classroom projects or activities the teacher would like assistance with.  If you have any questions, please feel free to talk to the classroom teacher or Nicole Kamphuis (, the PTO parent representative that will be organizing the Room Parents for the 2018-2019 school year.  Thank you for considering this very fun and vital role for Lakeshore!
